JetBlue to Increase service to Bermuda from Boston and New York
JetBlue Becomes Fastest Growing U.S. Airline in Bermuda with More Nonstop Flights from New York and Expanded Nonstop Service from Boston
JetBlue announced it is increasing service to Bermuda with two year-round daily flights and a third summer seasonal roundtrip flight between the popular island destination and the airline’s northeast focus cities. In addition to the added flights, the airline will now operate all Bermuda routes using its 150-seat Airbus A320 aircraft in place of its 100-seat Embraer 190 aircraft. The move further advances JetBlue as the fastest growing U.S. carrier in Bermuda.
“This is a big win for our loyal JetBlue customers on all sides of these routes whether in New York, Boston or Bermuda,” said Robin Hayes, president and chief executive officer, JetBlue. “With more flights, larger aircraft and a variety of flight times to accommodate customers’ needs, JetBlue – with its affordable fares and award winning service – is positioning itself as the top choice for travel to and from Bermuda. I’d also like to extend a special thank you to Bermuda Tourism Authority CEO Bill Hanbury who was instrumental in helping make this announcement possible.”
Starting May 18, 2017, JetBlue will operate daily year-round flights between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Bermuda’s L.F. Wade International Airport (BDA) with an evening departure from New York and a morning departure from Bermuda. Additionally, the airline will operate a second daily roundtrip during the summer peak with a morning departure from New York and an afternoon departure from Bermuda. Together, the enhanced New York flight schedule and additional service will expand JetBlue’s current once daily year-round service and offer more travel options for customers on both sides of the route. This ensures a well-timed schedule for the Bermuda-based customers every day of the year.
Also starting May 18, 2017, JetBlue will increase its current seasonal summer service between Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) and Bermuda to year-round daily service.
The new and expanded flights will allow for even more nonstop service throughout the year between JetBlue’s northeast focus cities and Bermuda. The flights will also benefit connecting customers in Bermuda and across the JetBlue network. Now, travelers can conveniently connect to an additional nine JetBlue cities, such as Houston and Jacksonville, Fla. The 2017 schedule also increases the connecting itinerary possibilities for major destinations like San Francisco, Chicago and Orlando, Fla.
JetBlue will operate all Bermuda service using its spacious 150-seat Airbus A320 aircraft offering the airline’s award-winning service featuring complimentary and unlimited name-brand snacks and soft drinks; free Hollywood movies; and the most legroom in coach.
